Gerald Wallace blocked most of Chicago’s dunk attempts on Saturday, but Joakim Noah did manage to get one down over Brook Lopez. This means that both Lopez twins have appeared on the posterized list this season, which comes as a surprise to exactly no one…
Honorable mention to the Clippers. They didn’t directly posterize anyone, but they dunked all over the Bucks.

The Brooklyn Nets got a boost last night with the return of Brook Lopez. Lopez had missed the team's previous seven games due to a sprained foot. However, he returned last night to help the Nets. But it wasn't enough. The Nets fell in Lopez's return xx-xx. Lopez scored nine points and pulled down four boards. He was not quite as productive as his normal self...

Watson was asked if he ever thought about coming back to the Bulls for a price less than the $3.2 million option the team declined.
“My agent said something about that, but I never thought about coming back,” Watson said.
Between the fact that his option was declined and the response he received from fans after passing to Asik in the final seconds of Game 6 against the Philadelphia...

Went to see the Nets play at Barclays Center on Friday night. This is pretty much my one NBA game that I go to every four years. The Nets winning on a Joe Johnson buzzer beater in double overtime pretty much ensured that this would be the greatest basketball game I've seen live, ever. Shows you how many basketball games I've been to.
What struck me going there, on Friday...
